Carrots in Churchtown

10 Mount Albion Road is a semi-detached bungalow located in a quiet cul de sac off Beaumont Avenue, one of the undiscovered secrets of the area, within walking distance of the villages of Churchtown and Dundrum. The Luas, M50 and Dundrum town centre are all close too. Currently there are three bedrooms, one bathroom and 90sqm of living space.

The house has been well-maintained over the years. But it is the 52m south-facing garden that is the real attraction here as it offers plenty of room to extend (subject to planning permission) as well as for play, gardening and growing vegetables. You could even keep a few hens. There's another garden to the front, with off-street parking for several cars.

This already has some nice mature planting and an extensive lawn, but there is room to do so much more and those committed to GIY could set themselves the challenge of self-sufficiency in vegetables, with plenty of space to grow fruit too. Killester Village and St Anne's Park are both close by, the latter popular with runners and walkers. The Dart station is a five-minute walk.
